Nanny next door on USD$100k

Next door neighbour's Nanny just landed a job in Los Angeles on USD$100k.
She has no formal qualifications and is 23 years old.
Her job entails wiping the noses of 2 kids and changing their sh!tted diapers.
Thats more than a year 2 JFO earns in Hong Kong, which could take up to 7 years to get there. A year in Adelaide, 4 years as a SO and then 2 years as JFO.
And her accommodation is included before anyone mentions HKPA.
She's British but her employers are providing a green card, something CX CANNOT do.

No union, must be her soon to be employers are happy to pay her 100k. Good luck to her, maybe they are as nice as they are generous and possibly they see this as a chance to give her a once in a life time opportunity.

Not sure what your point is. I know plenty of people without formal qualifications, who make far more than any pilot ever will. I'm sure you do too.

Ps. It's significantly less than any JFO makes.

Oh, and she won't get a green card as a nanny. I can assure her of that. It's theoretically possible, but isn't going to happen.

Yep, no way she'll be getting a green card. I know of a nanny that did the same thing - her employers took her back to the states.
Maybe she can coax some guy to marry her .
100k is about what a year 3 SO makes
